We Count – Removing bias and exclusion in the data economy
We Count, a project of the Inclusive Design Research Centre, funded by the Innovation Science and Economic Development (ISED program) will address barriers to participation and employment for persons with disabilities in the rapidly growing data economy. At the same time, the project will tackle bias and exclusion of persons with disabilities in data systems and ensure that these systems (including artificial intelligence, smart technologies, data-driven decision making and data analytics) recognize, understand and serve people with disabilities by creating innovative machine learning strategies and addressing data gaps.
